        Save something that you know is true to type - so not the white one. And try to choose a couple that no one else has mentioned. Don't put your hope on a single variety as sometimes you can open a pod and there aren't many seed/ they aren't mature/ pods drop off etc.

          I was thinking of saving some seeds from all of them ( I will exclude the white ) I was more interested in how many seeds from each variety, for instance Aji Crystal doesn't have many seeds per pod so I have already isolated 5 pods.

            Well I usually say try for 5 seeds minimum per person. 6-8 average but if the numbers are small per pod 3 or 4 is acceptable. There doesn't seem to be many participants yet. But on average there could well end up 12...or just half a dozen. With that in mind you will need at least approx 50 seed per variety - that would cover 10 peeps comfortably but you could always eek more out if needed. It is a bit of a guessing game early on. But if you could only manage to save 30 seeds that would be better than nothing. I find that home saved seed usually germinates very well so I think people would be happy with 3 seeds each at a push?

              Hi Scarlet,will the two forums be in one seed swap. So us here would be able to share seeds with VC & SP etc it would include more people in the swap?

                  Probably not JJ, hopefully there will be enough interest here.

                      I'm ready whenever. I have a few different ones but likely will be sending a sweet pepper unless any objects. Sweet choc from real seeds. It was great. Super early and really tasty. Looks great too. Isolated a whole plant in a seperate greenhouse so have plenty of seeds.

                              Hab peach - Have plenty of isolated seeds
                              7 Pot BBG - Only a few Isolated as there aren't many seeds in a pod and only a few of those are good.

                                Hi all,
                                I'm keen to join this swap. I have Kristian and Nigels isolated and saved from Realseeds.

                                Any thoughts on numbers and when we might be all in a position to be sending/swapping.

                                Cheers
                                Paul
